  • Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen

    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 54 mins)

    Story
    (89)

    With the humor of Bridget Jones and the vitality of Augusten Burroughs, Julie Powell recounts how she conquered every recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and saved her soul.

    Elizabeth says: "A good laugh"
    "Light, refreshing and fast"
    Overall

    I enjoyed listening to this book quite a bit. I'm one of those that simply must read a book before I see a film, and since I have wanted to see the film I had to "read" the book. I think the fact that the author is narrating her own work is wonderful and adds to the audible experience. A nice, easy listen when you need a break from heavier novels.

  • Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 55 mins)

    Story
    (434)

    Jeannette Walls's memoir The Glass Castle was "nothing short of spectacular" (Entertainment Weekly). Now, in Half Broke Horses, she brings us the story of her grandmother, told in a first-person voice that is authentic, irresistible, and triumphant.

    Kathryn says: "A BETTER BOOK THAN "THE GLASS CASTLE""
    "Quite enjoyable!"
    Overall

    Let me preface by saying that I have not read The Glass Castle - though I now plan to! I thought this was a fantastic look at early to mid 20th century life in the American West by a woman who was without a doubt hard as nails! I may not have always loved Lily Casey, but I certainly respected her for her grit and sheer determination. If nothing else, there is no denying the fact that she was always true to herself. I disagree with it being flat and boring - I thought Jeannette did a fantastic job of reading and capturing her grandmother's voice. I look forward to The Glass Castle and finding out how Lily's daughter's life turns out.
